Multitasking Mania: Poetry Prompt

Mad Kane hasn't called it quits yet. It's Week Two of her new poetry prompts. I'm just slightly behind as I'd forgotten until I saw Sian's. Check out others at Mad Kane's Humor Blog.

The timer is ringing ‘cause the clothes are done.
“Go Fish” has ended, and – surprise – the kid’s won.
Answer, “Mom, how do I spell ‘perk’?”
While I check another’s math work.
Staying at home is just all kinds of fun.

Thanks for joining in on my second limerick and haiku prompt!

By the way, what made you think I'd give up on my prompts? Do most prompts end up petering out quickly? (I'm new to this prompt business, which is why I ask. )

I reckon motherhood raises multi tasking to an art form.

This sounds so much like my everyday life...

I quiz for the spelling test while I make dinner and play catch with the dog by kicking his toy with my foot.

I can't even take a bath by myself. There is always that tentative knock on the door asking me if I know where the goosebumps book is or if I can please get out soon to cut a slice of pumpkin pie?

There are some days where I feel like all I do is answer to my name...

Now that was a cute little poem and great reminder too what the actual perks are of being a SAHM isn't it?

Cute poem. Fess up...did you let them win?

That was a fun read!
There's a song in there somewhere too - 'work is the perk that you're thinking of' to the tune of 'Love is the drug!' Perhaps.

Oh loved this one too...if motherhood is not about multitasking, I dont know what is! Congratulations, it is very rewarding is it not?

Although, for some reason, I haven't visited often, (although I'm going to more now) I think Mad Kane's blog is hilarious. And I love this prompt, however since you're a best buddy I can admit it... (I don't know much about the prompt business0...and oh, I feel dumb- I hate that~ (LOL)

So anyway what is it? (LOL) Oh well, you can't tell me in real time, I know. So I'll go by Mad Kanes and eventually between the two of you I will learn something new, so thanks pal~

And probably for the third time, Happy Holidays...or maybe it's the first time, depending on what order you're reading your comments.
(LOL) I'm trying to visit all of my favorite blogs before Christmas, so I'm getting weary and silly- I don't even drink alcohol anymore, so it's not what you might be thinking- you know, that maybe someone spiked the Christmas punch?
